Abstract

A private transplant of Merriam's Turkeys in eastern Montana was evaluated. Data were collected on movement, population characteristics, habitat and habitat use. The population was found to be increasing in numbers on the area studied. Evidence gathered showed that turkeys on the study area are serving as a nucleus for expansion into surrounding areas.
